Writer and aspiring designer Greg Bolton examines the idea that copywriters can be inventors, using examples of writers turned designers who write about their creative processes.

Disposable Landscapes

@ VOL 12 ON JAN 17, 2012

Vancouver based photographer Jason Neve gives some insight into his project, "Disposable Landscapes," which he uses to document the broken down urban scenes of Vancouver's downtown east side, a den of drugs, prostitutes, and poverty. He looks at the notes left in graffiti and the occasional revelations they can bring, and asks what the ongoing gentrification of the downtown east side will mean in ten years.
